from an fbi employee concerned that national security might have been breached as a result of the affair. cantor was told on october 27th. president obama didn't find out about the affair until after election day. congressional leaders from both parties are upset that neither they nor the president were informed until late last week. >> obviously this was a matter involving a potential compromise of security. and the president should have been told about it at the earliest date. >> reporter: a u.s. official said there was no breach of security as a result of the affair. a cantor aide says the congressman called the fbi's leadership to report the information he got on october 31st. but according to "the wall street journal," the fbi's probe had already been under way for months. "the journal" says the fbi's investigation began in may when it started looking into e-mails described as threatening sent to a woman cnn has identified as jill kelley, a family friend of petraeus'. the fbi traced the e-mails back to paula broadwell, petraeus' biographer. and by late summer, "the wal

"the new york times" is now reporting this morning that the investigation actually began some months ago. but, again, the que
threatening you. we don't know what happened there. that may have been what caused the fbi to be contacted by jill kelley. i'm purely speculating there. but that's where the fbi became involved and interested in the e-mail exchanges between jill kelley and general john allen. in his opinion, innocuous entirely, but that seems to be the spark that dragged him into this particular investigation. again, this senior official saying, no sexual relationship between these two people at all. >> all right. nick payton walsh for us, obviously this is having effects around the world, getting information, trickles of information pouring in from around the world. nick, appreciate your reporting, thank you. >>> let's go down to the pentagon for more on general allen's communication with jill kelley. barbara starr is there. we're hearing about tens of thousands of documents handed over to investigators, just how much contact really did kelley have with the top commander in afghanistan because the numbers sound just unbelievable, 10,000 documents. >> don't they? it sounds staggering. it might actually be
to the fbi about threatening e-mails inadvertently exposed the affair between general petraeus and paula broadwell. meantime a team of fbi agents searched broadwell's home in charlotte, north carolina, overnight, and spent nearly five hours there wrapping up just after 1:00 in the morning. "wall street journal" is reporting that the fbi agent who launched the petraeus investigation himself is under investigation. in part because he sent shirtless pictures of himself to jill kelley. jill kelley, the woman who kicked off all of this investigation, by complaining about the e-mails that she was getting from the petraeus mistress. so the agent, who knew kelley, allegedly sent those pictures before any investigation began, but as you can see, the story is getting much more complicated. we've got team coverage of the breaking news this morning. chris lawrence is at the pentagon. chris, i don't even know where to begin because there's so much to talk about. let's start with general allen. what's the implications of this -- of him being brought in to petraeus scandal and what has he said about it
dedicated army colonel quit after announcing he had an extramarital affair. it's an fbi affair that's sounding alarms. the fbi was investigating some suspicious e-mails and found some e-mails between paula broadwell and david petraeus. broadwell is the woman who wrote his biography. the fbi looks to see whether his communications had been compromised, and they said they had not been. now, petraeus was interviewed by the fbi, but it's not clear if broadwell has been questioned and if she will be. a u.s. official said petraeus was never a target of an investigation and that a tip about an affair led to that probe. now, general petraeus was scheduled to testify next week about the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. now what happens now that he's gone? suzanne kelly is in washington with that part of this big story. >> susan, as washington reels from the announcement not only that david petraeus is stepping down from the post, but also from the admission he was having an extramarital affair, a u.s. official has said the counter intelligence unit was investigating a tip that he was h

federal law to smoke marijuana, if i'm sitting on a park bench and i light up a joint, and an fbi agent walks by, federal enforcement official, will he arrest me? >> no. you know, even though he technically could, the federal government has never been interested in prosecuting low-level possession. even when i was u.s. attorney, i think we had 100-plant threshold. i suspect it's even higher now. i do think they are going to be concerned about -- you know, there's no residency requirements under this regime. so people can come into colorado and buy it. take it out of the state. and i'm just not sure how they're going to react to that. the governor, myself are going to be communicating with attorney general holder. the local u.s. attorney and it will be interesting to see what they say. because we in colorado really need to know that. people wanting to invest in these businesses need to know what the federal government's viewpoint is going to be. >> so you're going to have a rough couple months or maybe even a rough couple years? >> i suspect so. >> we wish you luck. and thank you so much
of justice in the form of the fbi on to team 6. now, as far as i've heard, this has never been done before. we're not focusing on what's important here. we still have the northeast part of the country ravaged in the aftermath of hurricane sandy with no power or water, and now we've got a benghazi incident that's going to come out and get ugly after the congressional hearings kick back up next week. so we're focusing on a video game right now, and as far as i know, of all the taliban and al qaeda compounds we've taken over in the last ten years, we have never found a first-person shooter video game there. none. we found a lot of porn. no video games. so this is not going to be used as a tool to aid al qaeda in the taliban in their trista agendas. it's not a training or recruiting tool. it's silly. this is a knee jerk reaction. and ten years ago, the navy gave full access to david sears of soft studios in north carolina to all their equipment and men and materials to make a video game. so it seems like they just changed the rules overnight and guys got caught up in that gray change area, and
